Morning Sapphire, it sounds stressful trying to organise for unexpected times and dates with people who live a far distance away. I'm sure as it gets closer you will sort it all out. Sorry to hear you've had a meltdown about it. Hormones eh?!
AFM - I've also been hit by the hormone train. Not experienced it quite so bad so far. H was at a recording studio all weekend so have barely seen him, which has its pros and cons! It meant I got all of the housework done which hasn't appeared to have been touched for a few weeks due to my tiredness etc so felt fab once it was done, and also went shopping and for lunch with my Mum. I kept myself awake til H was home (only 10pm!) as i was looking forward to him telling me about what he had been up to and listen to his songs and was also looking forward to a cuddle, but the hormones obviously didn't want that, they wanted to create arguments and make me cry like a baby for no reason! So for both Saturday and Sunday i went to bed on my own in a mood and upset. H keeps saying he is trying to joke with me to lighten the mood - for it only to make me worse! I hope it doesn't last too long :-(

Sapphire - that sounds like a nightmare. You just want to have a plan don't you for piece of mind. What do they say when you explain the distance thing?
MTB - Hormones are horrible! I had an argument with H over money a few weeks ago when I was at your stage and it was made worse by him teasing me about being grumpy (which is an ongoing joke generally but definitely true at the moment!)
AFM - Apart from the scare last week I'm feeling ok. I had my 16 week appointment this morning and the MW reassured me. I heard baby's heartbeat again, and apparently he kicked towards the doppler as she was doing it as we heard a thump! It was really funny! Still feeling nauseous and tummy achey, but I'm a happy bunny this morning really :)

Hello ladies, first time posting in 2nd tri for me - can't believe I'm here already!
Sapphire - sorry to hear that you're having trouble with organising people, do you think they may change their minds as you get closer to your due date? It must be a bit of a nightmare having them so far away. I'm sure something will get sorted - even if you have to resort to some pregnancy rage!
Mrs TB - Sorry to hear about the hormones, I'm sure it'll pass. Hopefully your H realises that it's only the hormones and you're not actually in a mood with him. I've not experienced it yet but have warned my H not to take it personally when I do!
Hazel - Yay for hearing the heartbeat! Not so much for the nausea and tummy ache but hopefully it'll pass.
AFM - Not much to report really. H and I dared to go look at prams at the weekend, we probably won't be buying until after Christmas but with so many options we thought it would be good to start making a shortlist, and it suddenly all starts to feel real when you go shopping! I'm still feeling exhausted, so much for 2nd tri energy boost, hoping it hits me soon!

Welcome Woowoo - took a while for my energy to increase in 2nd tri.
Saph-also at MW (now ). Can you have any 'just in case' ppl?
MTB-i'm also super hormonal. Poor H!
H-yay to reassurance!
AFM-still exhausted and not slept properly since first tri. Still bleeding and all monitored and seems fine. Both making hectic work and pregnancy tough to combine! Last day on 2nd tri, yay!

Mrs TB - oh no, these hormones have a mind of their own. Hope the hormones start to calm down soon... though I can't promise anything.
Hazel - yay for hearing the hb! Not a lot when the distance and the fact I didn't have a crazy long labour with M which is one of my concerns when people say later pregnancies are quicker labours. MIL thinks we want her here to look after me, whereas I won't want to see whoever is here - they'll be here for M. I'll be busy boucing away on my ball with my TENS machine on.
Woowoo - a pram is a big decision to make, no harm in starting to browse them already.
AFM - back from the mw and baby doing everything it should. With it being a lovely day, I took M to go and sit down by the river before walking home which I'm now regretting. I think I need to remember I'm 25wk pregnant and not 15. So having a well earned rest now!

+2.... MW called me in. All was fine :-) although an unexpected blood test.
22/09/2014 at 17:03
Haha Rio! Glad all is fine. Boo too exhaustion though. Hope the blood test wasn't for anything too exciting. Good luck for 3rd tri
Hi Woowoo! Ooh prams! We went for a look this weekend too and are confused but at least H knows what a travel system is now! Hope you get your energy boost x
Sapphire - Argh, wish your MIL would be more undrestanding. It's not an unreasonable request is it? Grrr. Take it easy though and put your feet up (if possible!)

Hello ladies! Will try personals but difficult on my phone!
Sapphire have you spoken to them directly about it? They may not have even thought about it from your point. Glad your appointment went well.
Rio glad everything is okay despite the bleeding.
Woohoo I'm still awaiting the glow!
Hazel glad things are settling down. How cute re the Doppler
MTB I cried over a door hinge at the weekend. Like proper sobbed!
AFM 20 weeks today and scan day tomorrow! I'm mega scared! X

FM Good luck! I think everyone has anxiety about it (mixed with excitement). Keep us updated.
